Dear Central Parents and Community Members,
During the month of February the Central Middle School students have been participating in events that are based on two different themes for the month, “I Love to Read” and “The Winter Olympics”. The events for the month of February were put together by Ms. Street and Mr. Kley and take place during the Central Time class period on Mondays and Fridays. The month kicked off with an opening ceremony in which the students were challenged to create a unique flag for their Central Time and the entire middle school started a Reading Olympics competition. The students were challenged to keep track of the minutes they read every day for the next two weeks. The students have been tracking their minutes and at the end of the month their totals will help us to determine the medal winning Central Time team at the awards ceremony at the end of the month.
Other events that have been planned for this month that are “Winter Olympics” themed include a door decorating competition of the classes favorite Winter Olympic Event, minute-to-win-it competitions, and an olympic themed trivia quiz. In addition to these events, students will be participating in a few “I Love to Read” activities like creating their own Valentine’s Day bookmarks and playing Emoji Pictionary that requires kids to solve emoji riddles that are based on popular children's books like Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, and more!
The month of February is also home to some “Snow Week” festivities. The middle school student council, which is supervised by Mr. Erickson and Mrs. Curson, decided to sponsor different dress up days during the week of February 14th - the 18th. The dress up days started off with a Valentine’s Day Red or Pink-Out. During the morning the student council members sold “Cupid Grams” that students could buy and send to their friends to show them some “love” on this special day. Tuesday was a day for students to dress like teachers and teachers to dress like students. On Wednesday we challenged students to dress like their favorite celebrity or their favorite book character! On Thursday the students were challenged to wear something that matched any decade before the year 2000 for a throwback Thursday. Friday finished off with an awesome show of creativity when students have to bring anything but a backpack day to carry their materials around for the day. We saw some amazing ideas and I hope you enjoy seeing some of the pictures in this year’s school year book or ones that have been posted on our social media for all to enjoy!
Be on the lookout for more information on what will be happening next month in Central Middle School when we switch our theme to “March Madness”!
